How well do you think you could do at designing an MMORPG on your own? It’s got to be pretty easy, right? Slap some quests on some 3D assets and netcode from 2005 until someone calls it derivative and pay-to-win, then sell it off for millions of dollars. Perhaps it will prove to be exactly that easy in the upcoming MMORPG Tycoon 2, a game offering players a chance to build their own virtual worlds and then see how players respond.
It’s important to note that this is not an actual MMORPG, just a somewhat tongue-in-cheek poke at genre conventions as you build up your own game. Still, if you’ve followed the industry for a while, odds are good you’ll be able to at least crack a few smiles at the game. It’s up on Steam Greenlight right now, so if this seems like the sort of thing you’d be interested in, go toss your vote down for it.
